Love Chandeliers?

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest,

   I don't know about you, but I love chandeliers.  And there are so many beautiful ones out there.  I use to find an occasional chandelier at the thrift stores, but no more.  In the early 2000's it was my goal to have one in each of the rooms of my home in the historic district of New Bern, NC.  I found some of the most amazing chandeliers, and put one in each room of that house.   Unfortunately, when I sold it I had to downsize, and made the mistake of leaving them in the house.  I've often wondered if the person that bought the house loved them as much as I did.
  I have posted many pictures of chandeliers over the past year, but thought I would gather them into one spot just to look at once again.  Some were taken at La Bella Luce, others at Decorium, and a couple at my home. As you can see, they are placed everywhere, front porches, entry ways, bedrooms, dinning rooms, even in the bath.  Let's face it, they are beautiful wherever they are.  So here they are......hope that you enjoy seeing them again.

          La Bella Luce front porch, chandelier and a fireplace, beautiful!

I won this one on Ebay for $20.00.  It came in a million pieces and broken. 
 Took me a while to put it back together again, but so glad I did.

I changed an ugly chandelier in my dinning room with a shade and crystals.

Hope that you have enjoyed them, I never tire of seeing a beautiful chandelier.
